April 2017

James 4:8 says, “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double minded.”

 

The nearer we come to God, the more graciously He will reveal Himself to us. When the prodigal comes to his father, his father runs to meet him. When the wandering dove returned to the ARK, Noah put out his hand and pulled her to him, when the tender wife seeks her husband, he comes to her on the wings of love. Come now, let us all draw near to God who will so graciously accept us with open arms.

 

In Isaiah 58:9, the Lord seems to put Himself at the disposal of His people, saying to them, “Here I am.” It is as if He is just waiting to bless you. Why do we hesitate for His greeting? Why do we hesitate to draw near to God? If we draw near to others in the world they will definitely grow tired of us and more than likely leave us; but if we seek the Lord alone, no change will come over His mind, He will continue to come nearer and nearer to us for fuller and fuller fellowship. Draw near to God this season and He will draw near to you.

 

God Bless You My Friend,
